Man Utd academy beat Ajax in Italy Cup final

Manchester United's academy have beaten Ajax in the final of the Torneo Calcio Memorial Claudio Sassi-Sassuolo.

Ryan Tunicliffe stroked home the winner a minute from the end of time, swinging a tight match in the Reds' favour and ensuring that the prestigious youth trophy will travel back to Manchester.

United's squad was comprised of players born after 1990, plus five over-age players, and quickly made their intentions clear with a perfect record in the group stage.

Local sides FC Chiasso and US Sassuolo were overcome, as were Denmark's Aalborg BK as United took nine points from nine, prior to the weekend's drama.
